Turn based strategies set in the world of 40k, Folklore Adventures with Dark Humour & Nordic Foxes, and some STEM based content is what is ahead of your gaming week this week. But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

Spirit of the North is a 3rd person or 3rd Fox perspective adventure game where you play as… a fox. Set against the landscapes of Iceland you are a magical fox as the story is set against Nordic folklore. Originally released in 2019 across most major platforms if you missed it the first time around you can pickup the Enhanced Edition which is optimised for Xbox Series X|S when it drops on Tuesday (it is already available for PS5).

Coming Wednesday it feels like there has been a lot of Warhammer console gaming with another title joining the ranks. Leaning more towards the tabletop being less FPS and more turn based is Warhammer 40,000: Space Wolf. Originally released on Steam in 2014 the strategy RPG is coming to console for Xbox with it’s single player campaign (and for a pretty good price too). If you are a Warhammer gamer this is a good pickup this week.

Also for Wednesday but over on the Switch is the lovely animations of the Point and Click Adventure Anna’s Quest. A hand drawn tale set against a backdrop of witches, dragons and trolls you play as Anna a small girl with telekinesis. It is out exclusively for the Switch but don’t confuse this for a kid friendly game starting out with freeing a a talking teddy bear as it has some dark humour as Anna is pretty good with unorthodox use of torture instruments.

And jumping over to something more VR related coming also on Wednesday is the not lego for legal reasons title of Brickbuilder VR. You can probably guess what this is from the name along but more than just allowing you to build static models this is also a physics simulator as you construct working models with wheels, gears and more out of ‘bricks’ all without the dangers of walking on the carpet barefoot afterwards. This is a Steam VR title for the Vive, Rift and Windows Mixed Reality systems.

Honourable Mention: And finally for our honourable mention this week while we are on a STEM related path is Nanoscape. Also a VR related title on Steam this is the result of work by the 3D Visualisation Aesthetics Lab at the Universe of New South Wales. Using the latest scientific research this will take you down to the microscopic world for you to explore the surface and interior of a cancer cell and learn about cellular anatomy in the process. Or in other words, have you wanted to be Ant-Man, shrink down and feel like you are exploring the Quantum Realm? This is as close as you can get to doing that. It is available via Steam on Tuesday.

If you bought any of these on the release day, tell us how it went! Also, as always did we miss anything? Something you are looking forward to more than anything else? Tell us in the comments
